SPECTRE IS THE SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE OF THE PRESENCE

Spectre (Aztar). DC Comics.

In More Fun Comics (1940) #52, the Spectre made his first appearance in the Pre-Crisis continuity. In the origin story, the Spirit of Vengeance is a New York City police officer named Jim Corrigan.

As the Spirit of Vengeance, the Presence tasks the Spectre with exacting vengeance on evil men. Moreover, Spectre is a founding member of the Justice Society of America. The JSA makes its debut in All Star Comics (1940) #3.

In Crisis on Infinite Earths (1986) #10, Spectre makes a surprise appearance. After the heroes destroyed the Anti-Monitor’s antimatter cannon on Qward, Anti-Monitor goes to the beginning of time, in order to destroy the positive matter universe.

However, the outcome turns out completely different with a new universe created. Really, Spectre is dependent on the Presence and is as strong as the being allows him to be.

OVERPOWERED, SPECTRE CAN CREATE A UNIVERSE

In Crisis on Infinite Earths (1986) #10, only five Earths remain after the destruction of the multiverse: Earth-One, Earth-Two, Earth-Four, Earth-S and Earth-X.

In a final attempt to destroy the positive matter multiverse, Anti-Monitor time travels to the Dawn of Time. There, he intends to view the beginning of time and destroy all reality.

At the Dawn of Time, the heroes and the mages of the DC multiverse are assembled to stop the enemy. There, Spectre appears, channels their combined powers and reaches into Anti-Monitor’s Hand of creation.

Though he fails from preventing Anti-Monitor to contemplate Krona‘s experiment on the DC Universe, he nevertheless succeeds in creating a new universe. With his reality-warping powers, Spectre dies and creates the New Earth continuity.

In this comparison, with the power of five Earths, Spectre is evidently Multiversal-Level in Energy Projection, and ranks below the Source.

Some of Spectre’s powers include: Nigh-omniscience, energy projection, dimensional travel, immortality, flight, intangibility, metamorphosis, super-strength, size alteration and reality-warping at the Multiversal-Level.

PHILOSOPHICALLY, SPECTRE IS GOD’S WRATH

In Day of Vengeance (2005) #2, Spectre confronts Eclipso. DC Comics.

Philosophically, Spectre is God’s Wrath. In DC Pre-Crisis mythology, Spectre is a fallen angel named Aztar. After the fall of angels, he repented before Heaven, and the Presence erased his identity, bonding him to God’s Wrath.

Since Spectre is a ghost and has no memory of his evil past, he needs a human host in order to help him exact the Vengeance of the Presence. Regularly, Jim Corrigan is the most common Spectre human host.

In Day of Vengeance (2005) #2, Eclipso, who is also an aspect of God’s Wrath convinces Spectre that the cause of evil in the DC Universe is magic. Moreover, the Guardians of the Universe had to contain magic with the Starheart, in order to bring order to the universe.

After, Spectre goes through the DC Universe destroying magic, eventually going mano-a-mano against Captain Marvel.

In a philosophical sense, Spectre is God’s Wrath because he seeks vengeance for evil in the universe. Also, he seeks redemption for his own past.

WHY SPECTRE IS AN OVERPOWERED BEING

HIS OMNISCIENCE EXTENDS TO THE OMNIVERSE

Perhaps, Spectre’s most impressive feats occur in the fan-voted DC Versus Marvel (1996) inter-company crossover.

In Marvel Versus DC (1996) #2, the two Brothers representing both franchises awaken to renew their abstract battle. To find out whose universe survives, their heroes must do battle.

In the issue, the Spectre and Living Tribunal both use their nigh-omniscience to see beyond and over to the Omniverse.

SPECTRE IS TOUGHER THAN BRONZE AGE SUPERMAN

In DC Comics Presents (1981) #29, Spectre faces the might of the Bronze Age Superman.

When Supergirl goes missing, Superman searches the entire universe. At superluminal speed, he even breaches the bounds of infinity.

To prevent him from entering Heaven, Spectre confronts him. In a classic battle, an all-out Superman delivers a powerful punch that creates a crater.

However, Spectre does not move at all and is unfazed by Superman’s might.

Considering Superman’s punch shook mountains, and is likely at least a Magnitude 5.0 earthquake, Spectre’s base durability is at least City-Level.

DURABILITY FEAT: CITY-LEVEL

Durability: City 25%
